CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – In two of the most competitive regattas of the fall, Harvard’s coed and women’s sailing teams each captured third-place finishes. The coeds finished behind Boston College and Roger Williams at the Erwin Schell Trophy, while Boston College and Connecticut College were the only two teams to outsail the Crimson women.

At the Schell Trophy, the third-place Crimson trio of Alan Palmer, Quincy Bock and Meghan Wareham completed 18 races for a point total of 94 in the A division, 10 behind second-place Boston College. In the B division, six sailors competed for Harvard. The Crimson tallied 120 points, just nine behind both Roger Williams and Brown, for a fourth-place division finish.

In Harvard’s third-place finish at the Victoria Coffee Urn, juniors Alexandra Jumper and Emily Lambert finished in the top two in half of the 12 races in the A division. The pair registered 50 points, good for second in the division. A quartet of Crimson freshmen finished ninth out of 18 teams in the B division.

The Harvard coed team also participated in the Nickerson Trophy, the New England Freshman Championship regatta. The Crimson sailed to a 12th-place finish.

Harvard is scheduled to host the Michael Horn Trophy Nov. 5-6, while also competing in five other regattas this weekend.
